    Looking for 2012? Dropquest 2012 Answers!

    Here is a walkthrough with the answers for all you royal cheaters out there (represent (h5)), you get 1 GB for finishing the quest. Skipping steps won't work since the page will 404. I've tried to be more detailed with riddle solutions in case anyone is curious. If you don't have dropbox, sign up here and get an additional 250 mb.

    Step 1: Go to https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011

    Step 2: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/D

    5305404/18681 = 284. It tells you to go to the forum, so 284 is the topic id.

    Step 3: http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=284

    Step 4: Read the third post from the top at the above link, there's a link to http://dl.dropbox.com/u/211024/Step4.zip.

    Step 5: Look up the coordinates given in the .txt file for Step 4, it should be for Blue Valley North West High School (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Valley_Northwest_High_School). Enter huskies as the password for Step5.zip.

    Step 6: Solve the slider puzzle here: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/r. Use this if you need help: http://analogbit.com/software/puzzletools.

    Step 7: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/0. What's the 3612th prime number? 33739.

    Step 8: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/p. The first letter of each line spells BLOG.

    Step 9: Go to http://blog.dropbox.com/, view the first picture. Visit the URL in the background which should be https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/b.

    Step 10:
    OWIREDFSA
    DEFAWSIOR
    RSAOIFWED
    EIDFRASWO
    FAOISWDRE
    SRWEDOAIF
    IOSDFREAW
    WFRSAEODI
    ADEWOIRFS

    Step 11: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/o

    Step 12: Go to https://www.dropbox.com/ and click the link that appears at the top.

    Step 13: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/x

    Step 14: http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?page=18&id=18&replies=1173#post-9111

    Step 15: http://blog.dropbox.com/?p=18, click on Katana-ya.

    Step 16: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/211024/Step16.zip

    Step 17: http://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/h. Answer is the hex colour code of clue16.png (baff1e).

    Step 18: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/e. Each line represents a scrambled composer's name.
    The number on the left is the nth letter of the rearranged name, assembling those letters spells out Drew Houston.

    Step 19: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/a, the braille spells out HELP 206.

    Step 20: https://www.dropbox.com/help/206

    Step 21: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/211024/Step21.zip. An email address is hidden in clue21.png as a faint watermark in the lower left.
    Create a folder named 1F75CC and share it with dropquest@dropbox.com (FYI: 1F75CC is the hex colour code of the predominant blue in clue21.png).

    Step 22: Open Step22.txt in the 1F75CC folder.

    Step 23: https://www.dropbox.com/votebox/3712/frozen-yogurt

    Step 24: Go to https://www.dropbox.com/about, click on Rian Hunter.

    Step 25: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/R. It's a Chrono Trigger reference, rainbow shell.

    Step 26: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/211024/rainbowshell.zip

    Step 27: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/t. The answer is the notes being played in the midi from Step 26 (badcabbage).

    Step 28: https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/s, fold it into a paper crane. See http://h-3.abload.de/img/photojan152302126ewz.jpg (source: NeoGAF).
    Answer is 11696 x 96911 = 1133471056.

    Step 29: The letters used in the dropquest URLs spell out Dr0pbox heaRts U, so that's your answer.

    For step 21 you can share any folder name you want, it is the email you share to that matters.

    There have been several sites plagiarizing this guide and calling it their own. If you're going to copy, the least you could do is link back to this thread. Don't be a dick.
